Get Dirty with a Body Treatment

Did you know that clay can be in many different categories according to specific mineral contents and shape and structure of tiny clay particles? Depending on the category, clay can have positive or negative ion exchanges. This means that ionic activity that takes place within clay treatments or cosmetics have the ability to do two things. It has the ability to hold heat quite well due to many mineral particles and organic clay compounds also have the ability to have a natural affinity for oil absorption. Not only can it aid in oil absorption for the skin, it has the ability to remove and absorb oils in unwanted areas of the skin.

There are many types of clay on the market today that are used in skincare cosmetics and treatments. The most common include: Kaolinite, illite/chlorite, smectites, and bentonite. These clays support different areas of skin concerns and most if not all contain helpful and healthful minerals to improve and aid dry, dull skin.

Calcium can be found in most clay to utilize the absorption of calcium into the body. It may also help control capillary permeability. Magnesium in clay lowers and regulates blood pressure and metabolism. Magnesium is also great for reducing headaches. Potassium in clay helps balance your electrolytes to prevent muscle cramps. It may also release energy from proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. All minerals that are found in clay can also act to regulate the moisture level of any skin type.

At ESSpa, you can find a relaxing and nourishing clay treatment in the Sedona Red Body Wrap. The Sedona Red Body Wrap is perfect for this time of year because it sloughs off dead cell tissue and any flakiness on the skin. It utilizes Bentonite clay from ancient sea beds and provides an impressive assortment of rare minerals which include: calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, sulfur, manganese, and silica. It also embraces an array of trace elements to increase the absorption of key nutrients essential to total body health.

We encourage you to add a gentle massage after your wrap to “feed” your skin with soothing nutrients, creating silky soft skin. Clinical studies have shown a reduction in skin dryness and flakiness, improved skin clarity and elasticity; and an increase in firmness that will leave skin smoother. This wrap also leaves a pleasant and lightly sweet scent.
